as the president and that one floored me. > th was -- >> rose: john dickerson. >> charlie, one thing about the horses and bayonets line, i think al is exactly right there was substance to the barb, but we should just bring in the other, we were talking about ohio let a let's talk about virginia and the number one recipient of money for defense spending the southeastern portion of the state a lot of ship building, 45 percent of the hampton roads area of the economy comes from defense spending, so romney may have lost it on the pocy tre but he m ha e pitics right in terms of his defense spending, i would circle back o the issue of women. the number of time they both talked about rights for women in the middle east they kept come back to that and there was clearly an effort to go for women when they went into that, into that cull again sack on domestic, cul-de-sac on domestic policy they went back to. when romney talked about bipartisan solution and in massachusetts on education that was sort of a three for on the panderg to women frt, ther was a lot of mess sick in domestic .. a lot of dome

and john dickerson of, and slight magazine i am pleased to have each of them here this evening for this important debate and as always i begin with al hunt in washington. al. >> carlie, i think mitt romney went into this debate and the calculation was all he had to do was hold his own, he would win a draw and just show he could be commander in chief. in many ways it was very similar to the strategy barack obama had ironically in denver and in both cases i believe it misfired. almost from the beginning romney was on his heels and as the debate shaped up he ended up agreeing with barack obama's policies on just a stunning number of issues on bin laden, on drones, on pakistan, on getting out of afghanistan, in 2014, iranian sanctions, syria defending israel, even to some extent on libya. so i don't think this debate changes the dynamics a great deal, people aren't going to vote on foreign policy, but i think if governor romney hoped to build a little momentum which he appears to have had with tonight and in florida he certainly did not achieve that and i think we are ready for a t

was in that first debate charlie. >> back in a moment, john dickerson. >> well, charlie, i think, you know, there was -- you wondered at one point if there was a part in the memorandum of understanding how they were going to run this debate at one point they could all take it outside because they got awfully close d rough with each other there. i thought that, you know, the president had to stop his slide and he did. he not only defined mitt romney, when i was talking to an obama advisor in ohio and asked what do you want to hear in the next debate they said outsourcing and autos and offshore. >> obama in his second answer hit all of those and talked at the end about the 47 percent video, smart to do it at the end when governor romney couldn't respond to it. although romney had responded sort of prebutted it in the previous answer. he also tied governor romney to the republicans in congress, he had that sort of rhetorical moment when he kept saying this is what they wanted in the republican congress and mitt romney signed up for all of it so he was not only -- he was on offense but as mark

to suspend their campaigning for a couple days. john dickerson is our political director. john, with just a week until election day, how is this going to affect their campaigns? >> reporter: well, no candidate wants to look like he's taking political advantage of this cry seusz so with a week before the election this should be a time of frantic political activity but now the campaigns have to pear way back and calibrate every political move. usually at this time the campaigns are trying to hone their message down to a single simple closing argument to punch through the voters. but that's been interrupted and complicated now. both men have canceled a series of campaign events. the president has an official role and his strategists are trying to both highlight that role while at the same time not looking like they're doing so. mitt romney as no official role but by turning his campaign into a relief effort shows he cares and it keeps him in the news at this key time. losing the candidate on the stump is a blow to both campaigns in the battleground states where a candidate visit is an import

us is our political director john dickerson in washington. john, a lot of discussion of benghazi right now. on election day how much do voters typically factor in foreign policy? >> well, in this election where voters have told us consistently that they care the most about jobs and the economy, that's likely to be the big issue on everybody's mind. the political danger for the president, though, about the libya issue is that the romney campaign is trying to attach it to a larger critique of this administration. that on issues from libya to the economy, they are out of ideas. that they are not on the case that they've not been showing leadership. so in that way it's a way for romney to make a case about the administration as a whole even though it's on an issue that will not be front of mind for voters. >> jeff: let's talk about the electoral college math if we could for a moment watch. does the math look like right now for each candidate? >> the math favors president obama at the start there are more states that he is likely to inin his column than for mitt romney. then when you

. and last but not least, our own john dickerson. but before we begin this discussion, i do want to take note that former south dakota senator george mcgovern, who was the democratic presidential candidate in 1972, died this morning. he was 90. he had remained active in public service and interested in politics and public affairs until the very end. last spring, moderated a panel at hunter college in new york that included senator mcgovern, former vice president walter mondale, among others, and he was energetic, engauging, and very witty. he was a world war ii bomber pilot before going into politics. and even those who disagreed with him that you felt him as a very nice man. george mcgovern has passed on at 90. and now to the news of the day. peggy noonan, let's start with you. what do you think the stakes are for this debate tomorrow night? >> oh, i think the stakes are pretty high for both candidates. it is the last of three debates. it is the last time i think the american people are going to see these two men together before voting day on november 6. there is a lot that we know they disa

of the bbc world news america, gwen ifill of pbs and joining us in new york is john dickerson of nbc news and slate magazine, i am glad to have all of them and we go to al hunt for an assessment of what you saw in evening. >> charlie, we saw the anti-obama tonight, and his name was joe biden, the vice president did everything the president failed to do last week. he effectively, i felt rather effectively and passionately defended most administration policies, and he also effectively criticized without malice some of the romney proposals and contradictions. >> i think aside from a few stylistic issues, programs interrupt ago few too much and smirks it was a very good night for the vice president. paul ryan clearly showed tonight that substantively he can play in the major leagues he didn't make any mistakes and held his own. >> and the president in denver last weekend, and i think joe biden really did in a very compelling way particular will i talking about the middle class, probably has a lot of democrats who were in the abyss of despair, were a lot happier this evening. >> rose: rich low
